    Bored, so got creative!

    Well, it rained non-stop here where I live all day long, (Watched all 3 Robocop movies on the G4 channel) So around 7 this evening I hopped in the H3 and shot over to Lowes, a huge hardware supply chain for those not familiar, been wanting to make some kind of stand for the G-Shocks for quite some time now, heres what i came up with, its 1 1/2 inch black PVC, all the parts just pressed together, quickly disassembles just as fast, kinda cheap and cheesy I know, but something different for now. Just something to kinda showcase the favorites, the rest of the collection is in a nice dark wood display case, Gonna build something nicer later on when time permits.

    The yellow on the 6900 looks great. Brings the watch to life.

    Thanks, if you look at the other 6900 with the negative display, the letters and G are in dark green, I really like it!

    Very tough and industrial looking! PERFECT for G's.... Only one problem.

    No room for growth! :)

    Thanks all, I was just thinking the only way to fit more on there would be to go up! I could fit a T in between the elbows and the basemounts on each side and put in another section of pipe to fit 12 more, as of right now I have 23 G's!

    Very cool!

    One question: how is it that they don't just flop face-down from gravity pulling on the weight of the module, bezel, etc.???

    Trivia question of the month:
    The history of the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show dates back to what year, when there was established the first Schweizer Mustermesse Basel (MUBA) with a special section devoted to watches and jewellery?
